. and diane dursis. the owner of the only mississippi abortion clinic which is fighting to keep its doors open after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to mak

you look like the anti-choice proposals already in 2013. mississippi and virginia. strict new regulations are going to shut down abortion clinics. texas, arizona and wisconsin, legislators are pushing 20-week fetal pain abortion bans. and in wisconsin, taking a cue from virginia, they're going to introduce a forced ultrasound bill. they're moving forward, laura. >> absolutely. they're moving forward everywhere. you can go on and on. the heartbeat bill in ohio, some of these bills are getting more extreme. someone in michigan introduced a bill that was giving tax credit to fetuses. i think they're not slowing down at all, but it's really interesting that these anti-choice majorities were reelected, considering in some of these states, for instance, ohio, there was an exit poll that show that the majority of ohioans are pretty pro-choice. and they managed to reelect this in both chambers. it seems to me that it has to do with the way the districts were drawn up. >> when you look at the texas governor's rick perry's pledge just lags month, it showed where the gop's priorities lie

's steven polazzo of mississippi. he said after touring the area it reminded him of how katrina hurt the district that he now represents. i guess some of those 179 republicans might actually have benefitted from seeing the damage for themselves before they voted. >> yeah. they have an idea of what they think the northeast is. it goes back to age old countryside versus city rivalry. so they think everything is manhattan. when they actually -- when he actually toured it and saw these are americans just like people in mississippi that they also need help. and, you know, the republicans would be wise to remember they're on the winning end of a very good deal here. if the federal government just vanished, the northeast would become richer and the south would become poorer. because there is a large transfer of wealth in tax dollars from the north down to the south. so why they would want to mess with that arrangement is beyond me. >> professor michael eric dyson and ryan grim whose office enjoys watching our broadcast even as he speaks to us, thanks very much. much more ahead. but first su
